I may, however, be the only one who purchased one.
In fact, I ran right out as soon as I heard they were offered at the drugstore.
Feet in the summer are gross, let's not lie. Flip flops are not our friends when it comes to callousness, softness, and having feet free from scaly white dry patches. Right? Right.
Ped Egg is very easy to use, works well, and even comes with little emery board stickers to place on the bottom of the egg for further smoothness. All for only $9.99 at your local CVS or Walgreens. Our Walgreens even had a more heavy duty one for men (or women with really nasty feet). And it's black so you feel EXTRA manly!
And now, because I looooooooove lists:
- It works - this is key - it sanded down not only really rough spots, but also just the general overall nastiness that comes with summer feet
- Cheaper than a pedicure - and also more hygienic - and possibly more effective (still TBD)
- Cute and fun to look at - this is important in a beauty treatment!
- Despite what the infomercial shows you, the little egg casing does not catch all the sanded off foot gunk. However, it does turn into sort of a fine dust, so it's not as gross as, say, cutting your toenails and letting them fly everywhere. I am a semi neat freak, and I didn't think it was a big deal at all - about like giving your fingernails a good filing.
- That was really it.
So, if your flip flop concerns are not so much hammer toes, but more callouses and weathered looking feet - try the Ped Egg - hokey commercial, yes, but quality product.
